The Weather Report Suite is such a great piece of music for this time of year.

I don't know about Best Ever or anything like that but this one is different with the flute on the Prelude and horns during Let It Grow -

I'm with you clashcity I can't say I have a favorite,but I really like the prelude with the flute, it is the perfect addition and I also enjoy the horns honking and squealing on the Let it Grow.

I've listened to all that is available from that tour multiple times and found the following versions with the horns to be extraordinary.

9/12- LIG
9/15-Eyes
9/17-LIG

9/26- Eyes,LIG

Wake of the Flood was released on 09/15/73, which Fierro played sax and flute on. He toured with the boys for a little and then shortly after WOTF came out he joined Saunders-Garcia, and the Legion of Mary until '75 I believe. He's always been a great match for Dead's music, and his work with Jerry is very nice as well. One of the best guests they've ever played with for sure.
